Aldous responds to closure of Blundeston prison

Peter Aldous comments on the Ministry of Justice’s decision to close Blundeston prison.

Reacting to the Ministry of Justice’s decision to close Blundeston prison announced on Wednesday 4th September, Waveney MP Peter Aldous commented:

“It is regrettable that this decision has been made and it is now important to immediately focus on the staff at Blundeston so that their needs are sufficiently met.

“I shall be looking to meet with them as soon as possible and then shall be meeting with the Minister to ensure that their concerns are properly addressed.

“This decision is no reflection on the excellent work that has been done by staff at Blundeston and has largely come about as a result of a lack of investment in the prison by successive governments over many years.”
